Paris with Paul!

Ooh, Paris!!

I really love that city. It’s so full of pretty and nice.

I’m going to let lists and photos speak for themselves in this one.*

  • We had breakfast outside, and then strolled through, the Parc Georges-Brassens.

  • We ate a super tasty, super fancy dinner! I’ve never enjoyed a bloody steak so much!

Around Paris 5
  • We wanted a drink and found ourselves in an Irish bar, of course.
  • The queues for the Musée d’Orsay were ridiculously long so we skipped it and went for breakfast.
  • We strolled romantically** through la Pigalle and Montmartre and saw the Sacré Coeur.

  • I bought pretty shoes and a vintage 1930’s ball dress at the Marché aux Puces de Saint Ouen.
  • We had the most amazing Italian pizza. In. The. World.
  • We ascended la Tour Eiffel at night. It was pretty. In the elevator on the top, a girl asked “Are you going down?” We giggled.

  • We saw l’Arc de Triomphe and ate ice-cream on the Champs Elysées.
  • We were dreadfully hungry and ended up with bad machine coffee and overpriced pastries for breakfast. Boo.
  • We visited the Pompidou and I decided, once and for all, that I don’t like modern or abstract art.
  • We walked around the Louvre and soaked up the sun at the Jardin des Tuileries.
  • We walked around the Galeries Lafayette a bit.
  • I died a little with happiness when I bought macarons from Ladurée. They were exquisite!!

  • We walked loads. Like, loads!

It was an amazing trip and a great end to my two months in France!

**As romantically as one can possibly be in a red light district.
